  1. Mr. Heald said the ship is not being scrapped. But she did not actually say it would be completed. So I would think it is still a long way from being completed.
  2. If you really what to visit all the ruins, you may want to consider a week or two land based vacation. But Progreso is a great place to cruise for a short tour to see one of the ruins. We have done this several times. As for the flight from Cozumel, that is an option but I personally do not like to fly in small planes that I do not know the details about the pilot and plane. Lastly, we have sailed on the Fantasy several times and for some reason Tulum is not offer by Carnival on this ship.
  3. Just use some of the money and sit in the casino and play and drink. On deck maybe your husband can pass you a drink or two. I hope you enjoy the cruise.
  5. I suspect you will have to sign one everyday, and twice on Sunday.
  6. Ok, that might be an idea. I personally would have no interest in a casino cruise but a lot folks might. I just wonder if the cruise lines would earn enough money to make it work.
  7. Nobody, not the WHO, CDC, the president, nor Joe Biden know what will happen in the next few months. I pray like SARS, MERS, and ZIKA the virus will dissipate but if it does not there is still a lot of hospitalizations and death I agree cruising will not resume. Carnival will not make any money sailing half empty ships unless the great raise prices but right now the prices list for the late summer and fall are too low for Carnival to make money with just half the passengers.
  8. Right now those type cruises would be illegal with a foreign built/flagged ship.
  9. The new CDC statement that COVID does not spread easily on surfaces but does main spread through person to person contact may mean self service food is better than having person service.
  10. Received FTTF gift card refund, credit card excursion refunds, waiting on one more excursion and two cases of water then then I will be square and hoping June 2021 cruise makes it.
  11. Taiwan is a great example for the world. I lived there for several years it is a great country.
  12. Heald stated today that Carnival plans to start the remodel once allowed but I said on another post weeks ago that I doubt it will be completed and I still think it was very unlikely Carnival will putout any capital expenditures while they have no income. I would bet that Carnival will scrap the project and maybe the ship. All new constructions are very unlikely for the new decade.
  13. The data on mask is unclear and the scientist have changed their ideas. In March Faucci was against mask in public but has changed his thoughts. The medical literature indicates masks are not effective against the flu. There has not been enough time to actually conduct as long term studies with COVID-19 but all scientist generally again COVID-19 is more contagious than the flu. I wear a mask out of the hope it helps and in certain areas it is now required. The best hope for cruising is an accurate quick test that can be used on all staff and passengers .
